    To paraphrase the late Ronnie Corbett who passed away yesterday – It was revealed in a government survey published today that the Mayor of Dunedin is doing the work of two men, Laurel and Hardy.

      And as his partner Ronnie Barker (and Cr Vandervis) would say,

      Here’s one for you and here’s one from me!

    Yep. Kings while they’re courting our votes, cabbages & mushrooms the rest of the 3 years.

    A piece of non news #gapfiller – but at least it’s another public prompt.
    We have already said on other threads that the mudtank / stormwater drainage report will be tabled at the ISC meeting on 26 April.

    Flood report due
    A long-awaited report into the performance of local infrastructure during last June’s flooding is finally about to be made public. The Dunedin City Council initiated the report, which has reportedly been peer-reviewed. Staff decided to investigate the performance of mud tanks in coping with record rainfall, following complaints by the public. It’s been suggested the council didn’t maintain infrastructure to adequate standards, contributing to the devastation caused. Some business and home owners are still dealing with flood damage, almost a year on. The report’s due to be considered in the council’s next infrastructure services committee meeting on the 26th of April.

    It probably took around two or three months to compile the report and the next nine or ten to ‘peer review’ it to arrive at any sort of consensus. What’s the bet that the main blame will be ‘sea level rise’, a little bit of contractor fault and [deleted].
